A gift from my girlfriend

Postby Pomse2001 » Fri Jun 01, 2018 5:40 pm

Yesterday my girlfriend surprised me with a gift, she had found some star wars figures with some weapons in a shop in copenhagen.

Wow, this is the very first time that any girlfriend have bought me any vintage star wars items, so I must admit I was very surprised :shock:

She was very curious about if she had paid to much for them or if she had done a great deal so she told me what she paid for them. In uk money she had paid £27 for them, I must admit I told her that it was to much. I told her between £7 and £14 would more have been the correct price to pay for them, but again I do not know what the weapons is worth and what it is for :? She was a little bit surprised that she had paid to much because she thought it was cheap.

I am not allowed to give them away, sell them or trade them :lol: as she say what you get from your girlfriend you keep :lol: lucky me that I collect variants so maybe there is some variants between them that I do not have or maybe I am so lucky that I do not have any of the variants :D

What do guys think did I value the figures correctly ? :?

I don't think you're far off in your valuation. It's a shame none of those weapons are vintage, otherwise your girlfriend's price would have suddenly become very good! :-)

You better have a special shelf to display them.

That's right, you better get an expensive special rotating display shelf just for these. :lol:

Hold her tight and never let her go. :D

The low value is about right, the weapons unfortunately no value really, nice that she's bought them for you, you never know she might catch the bug too. 8)
You don't own your toys, you only borrow them until you sell them or die!

Yes she is a keeper and also a toy collector so she understand me. But she is not a star wars collector.

Sounds fantastic, there is maybe something in the air. Let us know later what she bought :D
